We came to this location for the first time. Not planning to come back though. The restaurant was ok, nothing fancy. The service was ok. The food was not good and pricey. The clam chowder was sour, other food were salty. $18 for a shot of bourbon with fancy prepare at the table, ikr. (the preparation of that was excellent)

The Crab & Shrimp Cakes were amazing! The best I've ever had! My husband had the Filet Mignon and it was so delicious and tender he raved about it. Service was friendly and outstanding. The view of the harbor was gorgeous. We really enjoyed the whole experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Harborside. You won't be disappointed!

I ordered the wood fired oven baked plank salmon and steamed veggies because I am Paleo. The salmon was delicious but sadly it was raw inside so I asked them to cook it. When I got it back they had put it on the grill with oil and totally ruined it. Instead of putting it back in the oven they took a short cut and put it on the grill with horrible tasking oil which is all I tasted when they brought it back. What a disappointment

Extremely dated, food was barely decent and no where near the price point they’re asking. Expected Del Frisco’s, Maestros or Ringside quality and got Red Lobster

Actually it was a birthday. But no one made a comment at the restaurant. Service was a little slow,had to grab another server a couple of times to get things ordered.
Had the rib eye was a little bland and not very hot. The other plates were good actor the others at the table.

This is THE LAST TIME I eat at this restaurant. I clearly ordered a salad and asked for the dressing on the SUDE. Instead I get a salad DRENCHED in dressing; lettuce so soaked it had no crunch. I didn’t want to wait for another salad. When you’re on a lunch break , how hard is it to understand time is limited. I’m a fan of this chain, but not in Portlandia where far to often servers don’t do a good job

We came to celebrate my Son’s Birthday! They seated us at a VIP Table with a view of the river. They also gave us menus that said Happy Birthday at the Top!
The food was good especially the stuffed halibut with crab! Yummy!

Overall, the experience was great, but parking is a headache, the decor needs a refresh, and the value was good only because we took advantage of a Landry's member special.

Seated outside on a beautiful evening. Seating is on a public thoroughfare, both a plus and s minus. The food was excellent and the service staff gracious and attentive. The food and wine prices are on the high side.

The fillet was unsatisfactory. This steak was equivalent of a Denny’s breakfast steak. It was small and not flavorful at all. The lemon chicken on top of the linguine was dry and had no flavor. Your restaurant has really gone down hill in terms of food. Waitress was great!

We are spoiled by our McCormick & Schmick in Michigan, I guess. The Portland restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. The service was good, but everything else was just OK. We didn't feel particularly welcome, the food was just OK+ and hence the value was only fair. I'd go there again, but it wouldn't be anywhere near the top of my list, given all the alternatives.

Very enjoyable. Yellow jackets made it challenging, but the food was great and the service very good. Good portions and flavors. Had to wait a bit long for the bottle of wine to arrive, with a reminder. Overall we love it here!

We were surprised by the limited menu for a restaurant that is supposed to be known for its seafood. We go to the Chart House back home where we are always very happy. Sorry McCormick and Schmidt, you just weren't as good as we expected.

There is better food in Portland unfortunately. The calamari was served cold. The ahi was over cooked for seared. The rockfish was very very good. The simply prepared salmon was also good. The server would take your order and turn around and move on before you were finished speaking. Felt very impersonal for a high end seafood restaurant. View and outside dining is nice.
